good internet speed on one pc, bad on another

  VictorChristiansen 20:27 14 Jun 15


I have two computers, one a laptop, the other a tower. On my laptop i normally get around 10mbits on download speed and a bit lower on upload, but on my other pc, the highest i ever get is like 2mbits on download, and that is only if i turn everything else off.

I thought it might be my usb wifi receiver, so i plugged it into my laptop and turned off the intergrated netcard. But it stil got around 10mbits. It's not the location either, i did the same test where my tower is currently standing, same result, 10mbits. I couldn't find any other solutions on the internet, hence why i am asking the people on this forum. My drivers are updated btw, before you mention it.

I will try and write what i think is relevant info.

I have a MSI motherboard running realtek ethernet.

The usb wireless receiver is a TP-Link wn823n

I run windows 8 (i'm a sinner)

Request more info if you need it.

Please help, it's quite frustrating.

Is the body of the PC between the aerial and the Router?

As wee eddie, This cable, or similar will allow you to change the Wi-Fi dongle's position. Otherwise run an Ethernet cable to your desktop.
